This information will be used by the DOJ in preparing its next assessment of agency compliance as required by the Rehabilitation Act. The CIOC Accessibility Committee will also use this information to identify best practices and lessons learned. • In the spring of 2011, the DOJ will issue a progress report on Federal agency compliance with Section 508, the first since 2004. Going forward, DOJ will meet its obligation to issue a report biennially. • Beginning in FY 2011, the GSA OGP will begin providing OMB a quarterly summary report containing results of Section 508 reviews of a sample of solicitations posted on FedBizOpps.gov. GSA will provide the agencies a summary of the sampling results to facilitate sharing of best practices and successes, and to address common challenges. This listening session will focus on what other steps the Federal government can take to increase the accessibility and usability of government information and data for persons with disabilities. Input is sought on the following questions: • What can technology do to improve things for people with disabilities? • What can the Federal government do to use technology better or in new ways? • What can the Federal government do to make technology more accessible? • What emerging technologies are being used by the Federal government that you are left out of? • What technologies should the Federal government use that would enhance your interactions with the Federal government? • What are State and local governments doing that the Federal government should follow? • What can the Federal government do to influence technology accessibility? VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:28 Dec 01, 2010 Jkt 223001 • From the perspective of Federal employees, how has Section 508 improved your ability to do your job? How can implementation of Section 508 be improved? • From the perspective of vendors, how can implementation of Section 508 be improved? • What could the Federal government ask that would allow vendors to better show that their products meet accessibility needs? • What improvements could be made to VPATs? • Do you believe the IT industry would benefit from a professional certification or credential that denotes a company’s expertise in accessibility? How could that be implemented and managed; and should the government play a role in making that happen? • Feedback from the listening session will be used by, and shared across, agencies to improve accessibility and usability. Karen Palm, Associate Chief Information Officer.

Purpose: The Office of Citizen Exchanges welcomes proposals for twoway exchanges (one component in the United States and the other in the chosen country) that directly respond to the thematic areas outlined below. Please see Section III.3. for more information on eligibility requirements. Themes (1) Training Sports Coaches Exchanges funded under this theme will focus on aiding youth and secondary school coaches in the target countries in the development and implementation of appropriate training methodologies. The goal is to ensure the optimal technical proficiency among the coaches participating in the program, while also emphasizing the role sports can play in the long-term well-being of youth.

These exchanges should advance cross-cultural understanding of the role of sports as a significant factor in educational success. (3) Sport and Disability Exchanges funded under this theme are designed to promote and sponsor sports, recreation, fitness, and leisure events for children and adults with disabilities. Project goals include improving the quality of life for people with disabilities by providing affordable, inclusive sports experiences that build self-esteem and confidence, enhancing active participation in community life, and making a significant contribution to the physical and psychological health of people with disabilities. Proposals under this theme aim to demonstrate that people with a disability can be included in sports opportunities in their communities, and will develop opportunities for them to do so. (4) Sport and Health Exchanges funded under this theme will focus on effective and practical ways to use sports personalities and sports health professionals to increase awareness among young people of the importance of following a healthy lifestyle to reduce illness, prevent injuries and speed rehabilitation and recovery. Emphasis will be on the responsibility of the broader community to support healthy behavior. The project goals are to promote and integrate scientific research, education, and practical applications of sports medicine and exercise science to maintain and enhance physical performance, fitness, health, and quality of life. (Actual medical training and dispensing of medications are outside the purview of this theme.) The pursuit of academic degrees from U.S. institutions is not an acceptable focus of this program.
